Dead Space 1 takes place 10 years after the second game, in which the Earth is abandoned and the Necromorphs take over most of the world. The only way to destroy it is to go back to the first Dead Space and reactivate the Reactor Booster. Even though the setting is great, the plot doesn’t hold up too well. The main villain, the so called “Reaper” for example, was way too hard to defeat.
You can download Dead Space 1 right now via Steam. The game has Steam codes available on the game's product page. Also, the game is available as a PS3 full download as well. Those who have had an interest in Dead Space will want to have a look at this mod anyway.
Dead Space 1 is a survival horror game on Xbox 360 and PC. Interestingly enough, the mod was released first on the PC and then ported for the PS3 version. The game has a fairly minimal difficulty curve, but the most replayable parts in the game are the different character races, weapons, and ways of defeating the enemies. Even though the sequel is superior in many aspects, the single player mode of Dead Space has some of the best puzzles and scares of any survival horror game.
So if you want to play this survival horror adventure on Xbox 360 and PC, then you can download Dead Space on Steam and the PS3 right now. There is also a mod out for Dead Space 1, although it is currently for the PC and has a release date of September 4.
